Sheila J reviewed: One day atmospheric landscape oil painting course aboard the narrowboat Peewit with Melanie Max

"A wonderful, fun day with Melanie in a lovely setting. Learnt lots of techniques, made some mistakes along the way, but had the benefit of a one-to-one tutor to help me correct them, which was invaluable. The best way to learn in my opinion. I was thrilled with what I was able to achieve, and was given Melanie’s lovely demonstration piece to bring home, together with my two artworks. Super day. Thanks Melanie. "

"A nice day with a professional artist, certainly brought me on in my practice and provoked my thinking on aspects of colour and blending. I would have valued a shorter demo before doing practice , as taking in all aspects of a longer demo, was challenging when it came to putting it in practice."

Melanie Max responded:

"Hi Jacqueline thanks for your feedback. I will consider breaking the demo and steps down into stages."

"I had a really super day with Melanie, she is an encouraging and supportive teacher. After a little boat trip, Melanie gave me a demonstration that was amazing and then she guided me in my own painting. I learnt so much and then went home with a series of lovely paintings. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone for a unique creative day out."

"As a complete beginner, I spent a fabulous day with Melanie on her beautiful floating studio. After a short boat ride onto the fens with views of kingfisher, egret, coots and moorhens, Melanie gave a good introduction to the day, explaining about paints and how to mix them, even teaching me how to use the palette and various brushes, then demonstrating creating a gradient before cutting in and adding colour to create a wonderful landscape. When it was time for me to have a go she was extraordinarily patient, providing advice about how to create perspective and create light and using tone and colour to create interest. She provided rescue remedies when things went wrong and I was amazed at the artwork I created by the end of the day and delighted to go home with Melanie’s demonstration piece. It was an absolutely amazing experience with a wonderful instructor which I will remember forever. I would highly recommend it."
